Anyways, I love to travel and I love to film and create travel diaries! I knew if I wanted to up my film game I needed a Drone! So about 6 months ago I got the DJI SPARK (https://amzn.to/2t6dPBN) ! I did my research and loved what I found!
Now here is why I think you should get the DJI SPARK https://amzn.to/2t6dPBN if you are a travel on the go film/drone flyer!
FIRST OFF! The size! You can not beat the fact that it fits in a super small case and you can put it into your backpack without having to pack a separate bag for everything. The exact size is 143×143×55 mm! It is tiny! However, it does shoot very well!
The DJI Spark does not shoot 4K quality but if you are a quick editor or on he go all the time 1080 is great for any computer and any hard drive. You do not have to worry if you will be able to send the footage to your phone or if your computer can handle the files because it shoots the same quality as your Apple iPhone 7 Plus, GSM Unlocked, 32GB – Black (Certified Refurbished)“>iPhone! When ever I shoot 4K on my PANASONIC LUMIX G7 4K Mirrorless Camera, with 14-42mm MEGA O.I.S. Lens, 16 Megapixels, 3 Inch Touch LCD, DMC-G7KS (USA SILVER)“>Lumix G7 camera or on my GoPro HERO5 Black“>GoPro Hero 5 it takes forever to edit, as all the files have to render and my computer, Apple MacBook Pro MD101LL/A 13.3-inch Laptop (2.5Ghz, 4GB RAM, 500GB HD) (Certified Refurbished)“>a Macbook Pro, constantly crashes I just got tired of it and knew that a DJI Spark Drone Quadcopter Fly More Combo (Alpine White) with 3 Batteries, Remote Controller, Charger, Charging Hub, Shoulder Bag, Camera Gimbal Bundle Kit with MUST HAVE Accessories“>DJI Spark would give me the quality I wanted and the convience of quick editing and viewing ability.
Here are three videos I filmed from Utah, Iceland and Los Angeles using my Spark
I also love the fact that you can connect your Apple iPhone 7 Plus, GSM Unlocked, 32GB – Black (Certified Refurbished)“>iPhone into the controller! Which means again less space to be taken up in your travel bags! After you are done flying you can just drop off the footage onto your phone with a click of a button.
The spark is super easy to learn how to fly!!! Just take it out into an open field and practice moving the right side up and down and the left side!!! Trust me it is fun!
The fact that the drone is so small as well is that you can fly it anywhere and in-between things as well. You can also fly it without people really noticing that you are filming and flying a drone as some times that can be distracting.
Each battery lasts about 15 minutes. To some 15 minutes may seem like a lot of time, but 15 minutes goes by quick!!! and you technically have like 10 minutes because at 5 mins left the drone begins to try to go home. You can buy DJI Spark Intelligent Battery, Black (CP.PT.000789)“>extra batteries as well as the charging dock can charge up to four batteries at one time along with the controller.
The drone can also fly up to 13,00 feet which is super high!!!
Wind movement is very limited, it does do well with stabilization in the wind but will be picked up from heavy gusts of wind!
However, I have crashed my DJI Spark With Remote Control Combo (White)“>DJI spark before and thanks to the Propeller protectors I still have all my wings! and it is perfectly fine! So they have strength!
The best part about the DJI Spark With Remote Control Combo (White)“>DJI Spark is the price!!! It is super cost-affordable compared to other Drones!!!
You can also get a DJI Spark Portable Mini Drone Alpine White (Certified Refurbished) (Standard Unit)“>refurbished drone which means it was once used, but was fixed to be brand new!
I would recommend getting aDJI Spark Drone Quadcopter Fly More Combo (Alpine White) with 3 Batteries, Remote Controller, Charger, Charging Hub, Shoulder Bag, Camera Gimbal Bundle Kit with MUST HAVE Accessories“> package deal that comes with an SD card, Micro Sd card reader, the propeller protectors, the case, and extra batteries. This is what I bought as I knew when I will be traveling I would need extra batteries already charged up and ready to go and knew I was going to need to buy an SD card or else I would be able to film!
I do recommend bringing a GETIHU Portable Charger 13000mAh Power Bank 2 USB Ports 4.8A Output High-Speed Charging External Battery Backup with Flashlight for iPhone 7 6s 6 Plus 5s iPad Tablet Samsung Mobile Phone Pack“>portable charger for your iPhone as it does drain your iPhone Battery!
Overall, It is everything you can ask for in a drone! The camera movements, the fact that it is light and small enough to fit in the bottom of your travel bag, and the easy assembly!
If you are looking for a drone for a first timer this will be your drone!
